Beal Conjecture as a General Form of Fermat's Last Theorem

Authors: Stefan Bereza

Fermat's Last Theorem (FLT) x^p + y^p = z^p could be seen as a special case of more generalized Beal's Conjecture (BC) x^m + y^n = z^r. Those equations are impossible when x, y and z are natural numbers and coprimes and {p, m, n, r}> = 3; if m = n = r (= p), then it is FLT; if not, Beal's Conjecture. In BC, if x, y and z are integers and have a common factor, they can be measured (without rest) with this factor as a common unit - making x, y and z in the equation rational to each other. FLT can be proved with proving irrationality of triangles inscribed into an ellipse whose sides x, y and z represent the Fermat's equation x^p + y^p = z^p ; here, for x, y and z a common unit cannot be found. The BC equation x^m + y^n = z^r (without a common factor) can be simplified to the Fermat's equation x^p + y^p = z^p which - at the lacking common unit - makes x, y and z impossible to be all rational to each other.
